Lena is awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed her tour. She arrived early and picked us up at our location. She is truly a very knowledgeable tour guide and very warm and caring person that was fun to be with for this all day tour. When we come back to the area we will definitely go on another one of her tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike and Dana! Thank you very much for so sunny review. I also enjoyed our day and I do hope to see you again with your children in Normandy. Have a great time in France.
Elena met us at the train station and gave our group of 4 Canadians a customized private tour. She has extensive knowledge of Normandie and added lots of personal anecdotes she's gathered living and touring the area. She has plenty of visual explanation and found us a fabulous spot for lunch. I would highly recommend booking with Elena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wendy, Dale, Helen and Tim. Thank you for coming!! We were lucky to have cold but nice weather. I'll remember our tour during many years as it was very special for you and for me.
Steven SayerUnited States
Our guide, Elena, was punctual, thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I had been to Normandy before and this time it was only my grandson, son in law and myself. Her timing, visuals set the right tone. Her grasp of the subject was complete. All three were more than satisfied. We highly recommend Elena
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steven, I really enjoyed our day and I thank you for your attention and your willing to help your grandson understand WWII history. We still have several sites to be discovered. Hope to see you again in Normandy.

My tour with Lena was fabulous! Lena has so much knowledge about this history of Normandy, WWII, the D-Day battles. She knew exactly where to take me to optimize our 1/2 day together.

Our guide Elena, was incredible. She generously adapted to our needs right from the start. Beginning with first contact 6 months ago by email through TBL. Elena informed us as to how we could tour Mon San Michel & the Normandy D-day Beaches in our travel window, Elena's knowledge of the area, the history and details of both sites are outstanding. Elena patiently explain details about St Micheal, Bishop Aubrey, the Abbey, & on D-Day beaches knew battle details @ Omaha, Point du Hoc, & personal details@ cem
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Emile and Sandra for your kindness. All my tours are private and I always respect your pace and needs. Hope to see you in US next time!!!
Paul SheahenUnited States
Elena met my wife and me at our hotel. Since we visited without an automobile she drove. Her vehicle was very comfortable. Elena is very knowledgeable of the DDay invasion. And its history. She was constantly discussing a wide range of elements of the campaign. Do you know why Bayeux was soared but not Caen? Elena guided us on a half day tour and left us off in Bayeux near our next destination. She was extremely courteous and helpful. English was great I would book Elena again if I visit the area.
Jeri KarpinskiUnited States
Elena is very knowledgeable on the events both leading up to and during D-Day. The American Cemetery and war museum is well worth the visit. Elena had great timing for us to miss the big bus tours throughout the day. Thanks for a great day.

I can't say enough nice things about Elena! She was so informative, kind, and helpful to me in my journey to discover info about my grandfather's unit.

Elena arrived early, she was very helpful myself with my friend because we had a problem with our luggage, and did not mind that we were 1/2 hour late in leaving for my tour. She was descriptive and so knowledable of the places we visited. It was nice, too, that we had lunch in a local restaurant that was excellent. I highly recommend her, I wish all guides were like her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thank you very much for the day we spent together! It was nice driving around Normandy country side and share our day. Hope to see you one day in US.

Catie MillerUnited Kingdom
Elina was a fantastic tour guide! From the very beginning she made us feel welcome. Her knowledge was immense and she took her time to explain in full detail each destination. We didn't have to think as she thought of everything and more. The best part was her attention to detail. Elina put together a beautiful book with maps and imagery that gave a deeper perspective into each destination and story. I can not recommend her more and am so grateful for the time she spent with our family! Thank you Elina. X
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words, Catie. I was pleased to share that day with you and your wonderful family.
